Welcome to Ian's Software Site!
This section contains various minimalist software programs that are tiny yet very powerful, in particular, the world's smallest, fastest and most efficient image optimization programs, JPGExtra and PNGExtra.

Optimize JPG files with no loss of image quality by cleanly removing "extras" (or "metadata"), those hidden bits of information that are typically embedded in files by digital cameras and image editing software.
In the same way that my JPGExtra program optimizes JPG files with no loss of image quality, my new PNGExtra program similarly optimizes PNG files by cleanly removing "extras" (or "metadata").
Displays the Windows "clipboard" contents as plain text, then copies that text back to the clipboard. This is great when you want to copy something and paste elsewhere without the formatting (fonts, colours, line spacing, etc). Also allows the clipboard to be emptied (eg. for privacy).
My programming experience dates back to the 1970s, when personal computers were still in their infancy and serious programs were written in Assembly Language in order to squeeze as much power and performance from those tiny computers. I still program this way today, and the results speak for themselves.
Here's some links to other assembly language software and programming related websites. Providing links is good "Netiquette", enabling the Internet to effectively become its own index.
